mintty 1.1.3-1 is on its way to the Cygwin mirrors.

- Tweaked cursor colour handling to avoid the cursor becoming
invisible under certain circumstances.
- Fixed incorrect response to OSC sequence for querying colour settings.
- Page-by-page scrolling now scrolls by one line less than a whole page.
- Added 'AppID' setting for overriding the default taskbar grouping on
Windows 7 and above. (Note that the AppID of a pinned shortcut is
separate from that of the program pointed to. It can be set with the
free win7appid utility.)

Mintty is a terminal emulator for Cygwin with a native Windows user
interface and minimalist design. Among its features are Unicode
support and a graphical options dialog. Its terminal emulation is
largely compatible with xterm, but it does not require an X server.

The mintty manual is installed as a manpage ('man mintty'). It is also
available at http://mintty.googlecode.com/svn/tags/1.1.3/docs/mintty.1.html.
